Armed Citizen Project

Pro-gun group looking to give away free 20-gauge shotguns in 15 high crime cities including Houston to Chicago

A pro-gun group recently announced at the National Rifle Association convention in Texas that its members are looking to hand out free 20-gauge shotguns in 15 cities.

The Armed Citizen Project, as the group’s name suggests, wants to arm residents in Chicago and other medium- to high-crime areas with the $200 shotguns so that they can defend themselves from criminals.

The group started its mission in Houston where at least four mothers have received free guns, CBS News reports.

Kyle Coplen said he founded the group based on his belief that guns are the ultimate deterrent to would-be thieves, murderers and rapists, among other criminals.

‘It’s our hypothesis that criminals do not want to die in your hallway. We think that society should use that fear to deter crime,’ Coplen told CBS Chicago.
